My 88 has 3.07 gears in it. (I believe it has the dana 30 and 35).
It has a tired 4.2L in it. I am also running 35" Baja Claws. Needless to say, I have broken tons of u-joint staps.
Right now it's geared so high I rarely use 4th gear....and never 5th gear.
I want it to be lower geared for cruising around on highways and putting up gravel roads for hunting...not so much freeway and not for rock crawling.
1. What gear ratio do you all reccomend? I was thinking 4.11, what about 4.56?
2. How to go about it on a budget, but the right way? Buy used axles and roll the dice or buy new gears?
3. Any write ups on this?
anything will help, gearing is not my strong point.
